We know all about Geno Smith’s inconsistency on the field and his trouble off it. But what does the future hold for the Jets’ quarterback?
They say preseason results don’t matter. Yeah, right. Try telling that to the Jets and their tortured fans.
New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith is back at the practice field for the first time since being sidelined with a broken jaw after a teammate punched him nearly two weeks ago.
Flynn, a 30-year-old career backup, will serve as insurance behind Week 1 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Short-term IR is one option for the Jets, but Smith wouldn’t be able to play until he was on the list for at least eight weeks.
Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall has come to Geno Smith’s defense, saying the injured quarterback was not at fault in last week’s locker-room fight.
“He shouldn’t be doing it right now,” coach Todd Bowles said Sunday. “We handled that internally. We had that discussion.”
Without Geno Smith for six to 10 weeks, the Jets could use someone with experience behind presumptive Week 1 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.
The last, crowning glory to the Geno-Enemkpali drama won’t happen until the end of the season, when the Jets finally unburden themselves of a QB who lacks the skills, maturity or respect to last in the NFL.
The Jets QB had plates and screws inserted into his jaw, which was broken when he was punched by former teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali in the locker room Tuesday.
The Jets are like Alex Rodriguez and the Jelly of the Month Club — a gift that keeps on giving.
Rex Ryan won’t excuse IK Enemkpali for a sucker punch that broke Geno Smith’s jaw in the Jets’ locker room. But he’s giving the linebacker a chance, adding more intrigue to the rivalry between AFC East foes.
Ryan Fitzpatrick’s bushy beard is already in midseason form. The Jets hope his command of the offense gets there, too. Quickly.
Buffalo’s waiver claim reunites Enemkpali with coach Rex Ryan and defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. NFL.com first reported Buffalo’s move.
Enemkpali, who had three tackles in six games last season, could also face legal charges if Smith pursues them.
